I absolutely LOVE Rocket Russian! I have tried so many other books, programs, cds, online tutorials, etc - and this is by far my favorite so far. I love that it uses a lot of repetition to build your foundation. I also love that it's not a monthly thing - but a lifetime subscription so I can take my time and not feel guilty about missing a day or two.
Great program! Love it! Thanks!!

So I was already really into Rocket Russian...I liked how you could listen to the audio and have your speech tested as well, the speech recognition is actually quite good.

But then one day I realized that you can answer the "hard......easy" classification scheme after each question, by using the 1/2/3/4/5 buttons on the keyboard, and that "R" would initiate recording......now I am no-hands, baby.

Spasiba, Rocket Russian!

Method: Love the repetition of the content in different forms (listening, typing, reading, role playing). I can learn the material in very different ways instead of just memorizing it all by heart.
Design: The best features are line-by-line audio and vocab. Very useful when I want to hear certain words/lines over and over again.
Content: Very useful and practical. However, Russian only has one level (please add more!).
Experience: I'm extremely pleased with the learning experience.

I have been searching for a Russian language app that allows me to learn to speak Russian at least to a good conversational standard, but which also lets me learn to read and write the associated Cyrillic script at the same time as learning to speak the words ... only Rocket Russian seems to allow you to do all three things at the same time!

I particularly like the voice recognition software that takes my Russian speech and converts it into Russian text, letting me see immediately whether I have it right or not. This is awesome ... highly recommended!

I have a hard time finding Russian classes in my area and in-person tutoring services cost $40/session. No thanks. After trying more memorized-based programs, I stumbled across Rocket Russian and it's like a class that I can control at my own pace! It's challenging, full of information, and is one of the first programs that has me really speaking the language.

I have recommended Rocket Languages to a few of my friends and many are shocked at how much there is on the site. I am moving at a slow pace but do not feel rushed - my favorite part of the program. Worth the price! Trust me!

The players of the conversation are very good and it is quite fun learning this way! I have tried to learn languages on my own, as I have already learnt four, but it gets quite hard when learning grammar and way of saying things. I think this way is the best and quickest if you have time and keep on trying hard. I hope to learn Russian quite soon.

I was both very pleased and surprised with Rocket Languages. Never has learning a language felt so effortless. The combination of many different learning styles is very helpful, and really helps immerse yourself in the language and experience. The voice recognition algorithm is a great learning tool, and really makes me feel like I am being taught by an instructor. This fully interactive learning experience is great for teaching the language, and keeping your recall and memory of what you’ve learn sharp. I would highly recommend to friends and family over competition companies like Rosetta Stone. Each Unit is a very personalized and useful audio lesson, where you take part in the experience from start to finish. Then you are not only told vocabulary but encourage to rehearse it verbally and in writing. The various drills used to check for proper spelling and enunciation was a huge help to me while learning Russian. I’ve already improved my Russian understanding and verbal abilities by 20% of what they used to be when using free platforms found online. It just isn’t that same or as instructive as the service offered by Rocket Languages. The community here with Rocket Languages is great also.

One major flaw, which is very frustrating. That is the speech recognition software is of poor quality. I do not know why this was not pretested better. But when saying the same words the same way results in a much higher score there has to be a problem. I listen to my voice played back, and it sounds much more like the Russian speaker's voice than the guess printed by the software. Often with time and no changes necessary it will register 100%. But often it will keep on asking for a repeat. It becomes very tedious. Otherwise the package is well designed, with a grammar emphasis which is necessary but often missing from other packages. So using this package I know why and how I am making a mistake. I have used another package in conjunction with this, but the other package is not sufficient by its own because although memory of the language improves, better understanding of the language is very slow. Rocket Russian helps this.
